Traffic signal operations handbook workshop series : final report

Description: This report documents the development and conduct of a two-year series of workshops to share information with Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) engineers and technicians regarding the cost-effective design and operation of traffic signals at intersections along state highways in Texas. The workshop was one day in length and was offered at six venues in Texas. Workshop topics include basic signal controller timing, coordination timing, signal phasing, rail preemption, detection design, and diamond interchange timing. The workshop participants applied guidelines from the Traffic Signal Operations Handbook in several examples using a spreadsheet program called the Texas Signal Coordination Optimizer (TSCO).
